Whoa. This one left me mighty sad -- and I haven't read any of the source material yet!

My first reaction (a bit odd) was to think (for the first time in decades) about the ways we were rewarded in that first newswriting class for coming up with "grabber" ledes. It was fun, but as you point out, it can also be misleading and even disturbing...not to mention discouraging further engagement with the material!
